Thanks PA teacher.
That sounds good too. However, I have no knowledge on southern
Chester County or Cecil Public School district in Maryland. Can
you give me a "heads up" or a link to where I can start my
search for info? If not, I'll start asking around and try to
find something on the internet. You know, whenever I hear the
word "Chester" the city of Chester immediately comes to mind
and I wouldn't want to teach there because of its bad
reputation and all the troubles it seems to have. I'm very
grateful that I have a teaching position, considering all the
stories I read on the PA teachers' website, but I'd love to
work close to home if I could.
Have a great school year.
